President Trump misled the American public repeatedly in 2018. He championed victories that never happened and complained of challenges that don’t exist, while repeating some of the same false claims dozens and dozens of times — on the campaign trail, at the White House, and on Twitter. This year alone, we’ve fact-checked claims on tariffs, immigration law, health insurance, veterans health care, tax reform, aviation safety, automotive safety tests, border fencing, foiled terrorists, job creation, among many others. But certain falsehoods stood out amid the rest: sweeping claims that defined political conversations and, despite the work of fact checkers, kept coming up.

Legendary broadcast journalist Bill Moyers has said:

"We've got to get alternative content out there to people, or this country's going to die of too many lies."

Moyers asked what the corporate media means for our democracy:

"It means that virtually everything the average person sees or hears, outside of her own personal communications, is determined by the interests of private, unaccountable executives and investors whose primary goal is increasing profits and raising the share prices. More insidiously, this small group of elites determines what ordinary people do not see or hear. In-depth coverage of anything, let alone the problems real people face day-to-day, is as scarce as sex, violence, and voyeurism are pervasive."

"So if we need to know what is happening, and Big Media won't tell us; if we need to know why it matters, and Big Media won't tell us; if we need to know what to do about it, and Big Media won't tell us, it's clear what we have to do. We have to tell the story ourselves."

This TED talk is so wonderful in this day of mendacity "How to spot a Liar"Go the extra mile -- how to go from lie-spotting to truth -seeking to trust-building.. "On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Lie-spotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception -- and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving."
